2004 Chrysler Town & Country Trims

Base

Avg. Price: $6,012

The Town & Country base model is called the STD, and was originally offered at about $15,000 than the top shelf model. In 2004, it replaces the discontinued eL as the most affordable model. It is one of only two Town & Country variants to house the 3.3 liter, 180 horsepower V-6. The STD will tow 2000 pounds.

STD standard features fall short of the "high value" eL, but this entry level minivan is still generously equipped. Highlights include keyless entry, full power accessories, cruise control, a CD audio system and air conditioning.

EX

7 national listings
Avg. Price: $6,844

This was the last year that Chrysler would offer the "high value" EX trim. Only the LX and STD models were priced lower, but the EX included the larger 3.8 liter engine, traction control, and a long list of additional standard features.

EX upgrades included a garage door opener, dual temperature controls, steering wheel audio controls, heated mirrors, a trip computer, a power driver's seat and dual power sliding doors and a power lift gate. Leather steering wheel trim, a roof rack and 16-inch alloy wheels provided an additional appearance enhancement. The EX was comparably equipped to the LXi, but not eligible for the same selection of options.

LX

53 national listings
Avg. Price: $5,463

The LX continued as the second trim tier for the 2004 Town & Country lineup. The LX and STD were the only 2004 models powered by the smaller 3.3 liter OHV V-6, a 12-valve engine that delivered 180 horses and 210 pound-feet of torque.

The LX come standard with all of the STD equipment, like full power accessories, cruise control and keyless entry. The only notable upgrades were heated mirrors and ABS.

Limited

Avg. Price: $7,124

The FWD Limited trim is powered by 3.8 liter V-6, and Traction control is also included. When equipped with the tow prep package, this model can pull 3800 pounds.

A CD changer and a navigation are both now standard. The Limited trim also comes with automatic head lamps, a garage door opener, keyless entry, three-zone climate control, dual power sliding doors, a power lift gate, electro-chromatic mirrors, leather seats, a power front passenger seat and a memory function for the driver, an upgraded Infinity CD sound system, power adjustable pedals and front side airbags. Exterior enhancements include a roof rack and 16-inch chrome wheels.

Limited AWD

Avg. Price: $7,624

All that separates this model from the FWD Limited, aside from price, is the addition of all-wheel drive and the limited-slip differential.

The Limited is the most expensive and well-equipped Town & Country, and this year's model is further distinguished from the lower trim tiers. The 2003 Limited and LXi were very comparably equipped, but the 2004 Limited ascends well beyond the new Touring trim. A navigation system and CD changer have now been added to the Limited features list.

Other upgrades include chrome wheels, side airbags and power adjustable pedals, three-zone climate control, automatic headlamps, electro-chromatic mirrors and leather seats.

Platinum Series

Avg. Price: $5,895

In 2004, Chrysler offered a limited edition Platinum Series finish on several models, including the Sebring, PT Cruiser, 300M and the Town & Country. This package was offered with the Town & Country's Touring trim.

This upgrade included several appearance enhancements, like a color-keyed roof rack, platinum wheels, two-tone leather seats, chrome interior door handles, and a satin silver instrument panel trim. Chrysler also added the rear seat DVD system and the six-disc CD/DVD player at no additional cost. This model was closer in price to the upscale Limited trim.

Touring

Avg. Price: $6,380

The Touring trim is new to the Town & Country lineup for 2004, replacing the upscale LXi style. Three Touring variants are available: this FWD, an AWD, and the Touring platinum Series. All are powered by the 210 horsepower 3.8 liter V-6. When equipped with a towing package, these minivans will haul 3800 pounds. All three come standard with traction control.

The Touring trim is very well equipped, and provides a better value than the Limited for those who can do without leather seats and chrome wheels. Standard features include a garage door opener, steering wheel audio controls, a roof rack, dual power sliding doors, a power lift gate, heated mirrors and a CD audio system. The rear seat DVD system is optional.

Touring AWD

Avg. Price: $7,203

All wheel drive was a $2000 option on the new Touring trim, adding the 4WD drive train, self-leveling suspension and a limited-slip differential. Both models were powered by the 3.8 liter V-6, and traction control was standard on all Touring styles.

The Touring trim came standard with a long list of features, including a garage door opener, dual temperature controls, a power lift gate, dual power sliding doors, steering wheel audio controls, heated mirrors and a trip computer. Options included the DVD entertainment system with wireless headsets and six-disc CD changer.
